Thanks to the federal shutdown he championed, untold numbers of government contractors are going unpaid, reports the New York Times (paywall). Unlike federal employees, contractors working on an hourly basis have little hope for being reimbursed for lost wages once the government reopens. And many small businesses are left unable to receive payments for work completed as far back as October. Some have begun laying off workers.

House Armed Services Committee Chair Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA) told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday: “But we have actually already built a wall across much of the border, and all border security experts that I talk to say, where a wall makes sense, it’s already been built.” Moreover barriers built in the Rio Grande floodplain will either wash away during floods or become dams that worsen the flooding. #Trump #BorderWall #USPolitics

A good read that explains some of the economic issues that are at the heart of divisions in the US. Those without college educations are not treated well by the economy in the US these days, regardless of where they live. As such, they will tend to stay in rural areas where at least the cost of living is lower. So the rural/urban divide is very closely related to the education divide that exists in US politics and is founded on people making rational economic choices about where they should live.
